Verse of the Day
The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it,[a] for the glory[b] of God illuminated it. The Lamb is its light. [NKJV] Revelation 21:23
You don’t need to go far seeking for things or people to make a success of your life. All you need is God, the creator of heaven and earth. With Jesus as your light, His glory will make you shine so brightly that His illumination on your life distinguishes you for greatness. Seek Him only, and every other thing in this life will be added unto you! You want to know the secret of success, not the kind the world gives, true success, seek Jesus and Him only; and you will never regret a day in your life! #Verseoftheday #Devotional #Bible #Jesus #Glory #Shine #Success #SuccessStory #SecretofSuccess #regret #TrueSuccess #Greatness
O LORD, you are my lamp. The LORD lights up my darkness [NLT] 2 Samuel 22:29
Since God has made you into a light, you no longer have any links with Darkness. Everything that brought unimaginable sadness, shame and scandal, humiliation, distress, broken heart, broken promises, disappointments, abandonment, rejection, trials of many kinds, was Darkness. But thank God for God, Our bright and Morning Star, came in and took away everything that reflected darkness in our lives and transformed us all into lights. Because in truth, nothing, not even darkness can ever stand in the brightness of His light, His glory. So don’t waste a moment longer of your life on those dark moments that used to throng your life, and focus on the fact that you are now reflecting the brilliance and brightness of God’s glory, our Lord Jesus Christ, and for that reason, no form of darkness can ever be able to withstand you all the days of your life!
To the Israelites at the foot of the mountain, the glory of the LORD appeared at the summit like a consuming fire. [NLT] Exodus 24:17
According to “Gill’s Exposition” of this verse he said and I quote:
“When God spoke out of the cloud, the glory of the Lord flashed out like devouring fire; it was not devouring fire, but it was like it; it was like a great blaze of fire, which consumes all that is in its ways; it was such a large body of light, and so clear and bright, that it looked like devouring flames of fire; and being upon the top of the mount was very visible, and seen at a great distance in the eyes of the children of Israel throughout, their camp.”
Now if this same GLORY of God is risen to shine OVER our lives [Isaiah 60:1], surely we know what this means! Every situation/problem/circumstance making a mockery of our lives has been consumed by the glory of God, and that’s why it’s time we no longer allowed those turn of events in our lives dictate how we lived. It’s time you got up and took your place. The glory of God in your life has loosened you from every chain of problems that tried to keep you in bondage. In Jesus name. Amen.
